The Maryland Court of Appeals yesterday sided with the developer of Sojourner-Douglass College's satellite campus in Edgewater, ruling that the historically black college's facility will not have to be torn down and that its construction did not violate a neighborhood covenant. The opinion reverses a ruling made by the Court of Special Appeals. "This particular legal victory closes a chapter in a long struggle," said civil rights activist Carl Snowden, a supporter of the school. "The decision, of course, is a welcome decision."

Local lore has it that Elizabeth Beall Banks once chased developers off her Gaithersburg-area farm with a shotgun when they came around asking questions. But even then, the sprawl opponent knew that the same forces that turned parcels around her into housing tracts, business parks and shopping centers would eventually threaten the 138-acre Belward Farm. Rather than sell it to the highest bidder, her heirs said, she sold it to the Johns Hopkins University — a suitor she believed would protect the farm from the development she detested.

Towson University is set for a major expansion into Harford County, planning a new classroom building and envisioning student residences in Bel Air, officials said yesterday. To serve a growing student population in northeast Maryland, Towson would build its first satellite campus adjacent to Harford Community College, on land owned by the college. Students would be able to get bachelor's degrees in programs including education, business, criminal justice, science and technology. Within a decade, the university expects up to 6,000 students will be studying at the Bel Air location, off Thomas Run Road.

More tests are needed to determine what happened to a newborn girl whose mother, a Villa Julie College student, led police Tuesday morning to the baby's body in a storm drain near her family's home in Clinton, authorities said yesterday. Authorities hope an autopsy will shed light on whether the baby was stillborn and, if not, how and where she died - in Owings Mills, where the mother lived in a student apartment on Villa Julie's satellite campus, or in Prince George's County near her family's home.

Villa Julie College is prepared to present plans for a satellite campus in Owings Mills to a neighborhood council early next month. About six miles from the main campus in Stevenson, the new facilities would include more than 500 units of student housing and a community center with classrooms. A private school with an enrollment of about 2,250, the college does not have on-campus housing. Three hundred-twenty students live in the Colony, an apartment complex leased by the college in Towson.

The impact of a recent court ruling that Sojourner-Douglass College's new Anne Arundel campus was built in violation of covenants on the property will not be known for weeks, perhaps months. But it could lead to the razing of the $2.5 million building - which opened in mid-July - tucked behind trees on an Edgewater lot. A three-judge panel of the Court of Special Appeals ruled late last month that construction of the classroom building and parking lot was barred by a 1988 covenant that required the 6-acre wooded parcel to remain "undeveloped, except for educational facilities in conjunction with the Anne Arundel County Board of Education."

The seed that Western Maryland College planted in Budapest two years ago will flower at the end of next summer.In August, about two dozen students are expected to come from Budapest, where they have attended the college's new satellite campus for their first two years.Once here, they will complete their junior and senior years. These students already are students of Western Maryland College. They just have never been to the main campus. They attend classes, taught in English by mostly American professors, in leased space at what was once the Communist party education center in Budapest.

Western Maryland College has fewer students than most Baltimore high schools. It can't recruit top-seeded athletes, and doesn't care to. But the quiet school on the edge of Westminster lays claim to something no other college in the state can: A branch campus in Eastern Europe.Four years ago, the college muscled aside two other schools to open a campus in Budapest. This week, the institution will hold commencement in Westminster for its inaugural class -- 19 students who have added an international flair to the serene beauty of the Maryland campus.
